    Looking for info on my new bike

    Hi! this is my first thread and Im looking to hopefully gather some information on the bike I recently purchased. It is a 1987 schwinn sprint frame, 3 speed, with a thumb shift and straight bars. (I think, it is bare though so I actually have no clue, I saw a sprnt in a picture though and all of the welds seem identical) silver suntour front fork, Campagnola gears, and campagnolo valentino extra rear derailleur, suntour x-1 fron derailleur, suntour superbe pro hubs,shimano exage 500 ex brakes, and matrix rims, dia compe brake levers. i thoroughly enjoy riding it. I paid $200 dollars to have it built, I am not very familiar with bikes and bike parts, especially vintage but I see that my ride is quite the mutt! haha which i love. I basically am wanting to see what other more experienced riders who are familiar with this equipment think of my setup and the value, thanks so much for any replies, I'm very exciter about finding this site, and riding my new bike like it's going out of style! Can provide pics if they would help at all, and will probably post some soon anyways

    Welcome to C&V. Pics are very helpful! I don't believe I've ever seen a 3 speed '87 Sprint.
